. is there emppir cal evidence intrp? >> if we go through september and the switchbacks you have to go through because every one is different, and the relative benefit of the switch back in terms of schedule time -- if you took each of the incidents and walk through them and okay we switch a j line train at 30th and church and had accident at balboa and people ran regular service downtown and each of the incidents we could point to the scheduled benefit was, and you have to look at these things again. these are a recovery technique, so they're not something that we go in and plan everyday and we're going to have 15 -- our target is 15 switchbacks. our target is ten. >> that seems like anecdotal evidence. did you provide the grand jury with empirical evidence? those are the findings here. i am asking about that. >> like i said we don't agree with that particular finding but if you go down, and we provided substantial amount of information, notebooks, discs, but we are happy to go through each of the incidents and took a particular month, and again took september and 182 switchbacks. here's

who said i don't believe that reporters are cal. there's a robust pushback on secrecy from many different levels. that does not mean everything gets out, nor should everything get out, but we have institutional structures that are pushing very hard, much harder than when i first got involved with this back in the 90s, and, also, after 9/11. i do see a robust press, a robust advocacy groups, interest groups, plaintiff groups, and whistle blowers ready to come forward to the ig or publicly or to congress, and, also, you have strong advocates of whistle-blowers in congress as well. i'm not saying it's in the perfect spot or that this is an issue that needs to be constantly addressed and subject of the conferences, i believe there's a strong institutional frame work to help transparency, with respect to the inspector generals within the agencies as realm. >> perhaps that's a good note to sum up on so i guess i should make a few comments on what's happened over the course of today. despite marty's challenge, i don't think we solved all of the issues. what i do think is clear is that
